FALLS VILLAGE, CT  JULY 2, 2019     Carly Tygart of Lakeville received the Contemporary Visual Arts Scholarship (CVAS) award presented at the recent Awards Ceremony held at HVRHS.  The forty-thousand dollar scholarship is given annually to a graduating senior who plans to pursue a four-year degree in Fine Art.  Ms. Tygart says, “This scholarship means more than anyone could imagine. On one hand, it is proof to me that despite everything I am going down the right path.  Going into the arts is extremely daunting especially when it seems like everyone thinks you’re doing the wrong thing. The path is definitely clearer now. This scholarship relieves a large financial burden and I am beyond grateful for the possibilities that the scholarship can unlock.”  
Ms. Tygart will attend the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan this fall

The CVAS, managed by the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, was launched in 2004.  The scholarship is based on talent and financial need.
